The sudden and unexpected tragedy of an accident is something that no one is ever prepared for. It always comes up from behind and leaves you feeling shocked and overwhelmed. That was the case when the driver of a Cadillac Fleetwood was in the 5400 block of South Braeswood traveling eastbound that was recently involved in a multi-vehicle accident. According to authorities, the driver lost control of his vehicle when he struck the rear end of a blue Ford Explorer that was stopped at a traffic signal at the intersection of Chimney Rock. Also struck during the crash was a blue Chevrolet Cruz that was also stopped at the red light. A southbound Mercedes was also impacted by the Cadillac as it was traveling through the intersection. The driver, a 70-year-old man, was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital. The driver later died as a result of his injuries. Police say that Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences is not releasing the identity of the driver pending notification of his family. Investigators believe that he may have suffered a medical issue prior to the accident. No one in any of the other vehicles involved in the crash was injured. Even after an accident, the unexpected expense of medical bills, the rising cost of insurance rates and other costs can seem overwhelming.
